Lock, stock and three smoking barrels! Collaboration between micro-brewery and micro-pub produces 3 new Cornish beers!

Cornwall, October 1, 2017: North Cornwall’s first Micropub, ‘The Barrel at Bude’ which opened in June this year and new micro-brewery ‘Dowr Kammel’, established in St. Breward in 2015 have joined together to produce a new range of Cornish beers; Tripel Barrel, Double Barrel and Single Barrel. Tripel Barrel will be the only Cornish Tripel beer and at 10% ABV is enough to send any rocket skywards! Double Barrel is no dud either being a 7% ABV Cornish Pilsner beer whilst Single Barrel a new Cornish lager at 6% ABV, finishes off a spectacular display!

The Barrel which only sells Cornish beer from small independent brewers is owned by husband and wife team Ian and Rachel O’Hare whilst Dowr Kammel (Cornish for Camel Valley) was set up by Yorkshire couple Simon and Justine Carruthers.

When Ian couldn’t find a Tripel, Pilsner or lager from a small artisan brewer he approached Simon to see if he was prepared to help. Strong beers are notoriously difficult to make but Simon was immediately on board. “As a one-man brewery I may not have the size of the larger Cornish brewers but that makes my business more agile. I’m able to drop things and take on new challenges. Brewing Tripel Barrel was difficult but we’re both really pleased with the result and we believe our Pilsner and Lager is also a match for anything else in Cornwall”

As Ian reports; “All three beers will be launched on the afternoon of the 5th November at ‘The Barrel at Bude’ and we will have a small party to celebrate what we’ve achieved. We hope that along with our local customers, invited guests will come and taste our new Barrel range whilst also enjoying a special ‘Barrel Pie’ and listening to live music. As a prelude to Bonfire night, we hope it also goes with a bang”!

The full Barrel range will be available throughout the Christmas festivities at the ‘Barrel at Bude’ with pre-orders for other outlets being taken now, for delivery in January 2018. For more information email moc.edubtalerrabeht@tcatnoc
